My Week with Marilyn
In the early summer of 1956, 23-year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) arrives from Oxford, eager and determined to make his way in the film business. He soon finds a job as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was currently on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller. Nearly 40 years on, his diary accounts, “The Prince, the Showgirl and Me” was finally published, but one week was missing and some years later, they were published as “My Week with Marilyn”. This is the story of the week where Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott) leaves England, and Marilyn, desperate to get away from her Hollywood retinue and the pressures of work, runs off with Colin to experience the pleasures of an idyllic British life.
The review will be up soon after I watch the darn movie.
